The Moon on 5/18/08

I cropped tonight’s picture a bit off-center. I thought it look nicer that way. The Moon will technically be full tomorrow night but it’s mighty close tonight (around 99% full) – casting crisp shadows on the ground when it isn’t hiding behind the sporadic clouds. It’s not a good night for taking pictures of anything else because the Moon is so bright and there’s enough moisture in the air to keep all but the brightest night sky objects hidden.
